When: Saturday 7 December 2019 from 10am

Where: Shropshire Archives

Run by: Friends of Shropshire Archives

Following rationalisation of its map collection, Shropshire Archives is disposing of duplicate copies of the second edition 1:2500 scale Ordnance Survey maps of Shropshire. These are mostly dated 1900-1903. There are also a few map sheets for surrounding counties.

The maps are used: some are torn, some have annotations, and a few are photocopies, but many are in good condition.

The Friends of Shropshire Archives are selling the second edition maps for £3.00 per sheet. There are also a limited number of first edition maps of Shropshire from the 1880s which are for sale at £10.00 per sheet.

The Friends website has much more information, including a downloadable key sheet.

You can reserve maps in advance by emailing the Friends  (not Shropshire Archives) and pay for and collect your maps on Saturday 7th.
